Chicago has always been full of magic and at one point the magicians of Chicago became famous for their particular style. It's an up-close and personal kind of magic that doesn't have the grandiose spectacle that other acts bring to the table, but is every bit as astonishing. In some ways, it's much more fun since the audience is part of the show. The Magic Cabaret brings that golden age of magic, mystery and mischief back to to Chicago audiences hungry for the unusual. In every show, PT Murphy and David Parr present classic conjuring in the Windy City style, using every day objects to bring their stories of old-time magic to life. With an emphasis on audience participation, and liberal doses of humor, spookiness and surprises, the magic cabaret is actually fun for everyone, old or young. Learn More

Cast did an excellent job with the roles they played and the material they had to work with...
Scenery and props were outstanding...
Music was appropriate for the times... Interesting use of the on-stage Victrola, but in some places the volume of the music overshadowed the dialog.
I was expecting a lighter farce, but the play was more of a drama and less of a comedy... I'm glad that we went, and now we can say that we saw Coward's first play, but wouldn't choose to see it again. Definitely worth the $10 ticket price.
